Even Ben&Ben is astounded to learn they are trending in South Korean charts.
The Filipino indie band took to social media late Wednesday to share the good news. "Woah this is crazy. We are trending in South Korea," they said posting a screengrab of a tweet by YG Charts, which also expressed surprise and wonder at what just happened.
According to its Twitter bio, YG Charts aims to provide information on how YG artists like Blackpink, Treasure, and Winner are doing in international music charts.
"A Filipino band Ben&Ben is currently trending #1 and also occupied the #2, #3, #6, and #7 position on Melon Realtime Search Chart," it said indicating it occurred at 7:40pm, Korea time.
"And I don't know why," it added, using a thinking face emoji.

"Uy nice," Ben&Ben said on Twitter, retweeting a fan, who shared a screengrab that showed what exactly was trending: the band's name and "Leaves," which could either be the song or the 2017 album from which the title single came.

Ben&Ben has been among the most productive during quarantine period, holding intimate online gigs and releasing several songs including their first international single "Doors" and "Lifetime," a song whose title was inspired by a fan's story. — LA, GMA News
